DUC is their broker now. More coverage? Deals in the wings? Here's hoping.

May be an approach in the not too distant future. One of the large insurers would pay good money to get their hands on this company and their distribution channels. I still think they are a bunch of sharks though!

Your're right CR, there's no seasonality in earnings and with a claims ratio of circa 7% on the core product it's rock solid with minimum risk. If they closed the door to new business tomorrow the run out is enormous. 350,000 policy holders paying £60 - £100 p/a with an average claim of £50 - not bad!! Employee benefit or employee exploitation?

Sorry, waffled a bit above, that should have read 13.5p this year eps, up from 8p laste year. Broker estimates for 14p this year. Must have miss-edited that befor posting and never re-read it. 5.9p eps in H1, 7.3p eps in H2, You'd think 14p looks a safe bet for the year ahead as from what I can see there is little seasonality in the earnings.

I agree - the chart does now look very encouraging. I haven't paid this one much attention recently - it's one of those stocks you buy and hold for a long time, but things look like they could get more interesting. £2 may be on the cards.

Seems to be a chart breakout today - looks an interesting stock. Grabbed a few earlier - directors are buying nicely. Broker estimates are for 13.4p eps this year, from the 8p for the year gone With a 6% yield of 8.5p forecast for this year this seems good value. Plenty of cash in the bank and decent cashflow too. Looks interesting to me. CR

I work for a competitor of this company. PGH have built a very robust and profitable business over the last 18 years. Essentially, they were the pioneers of benefit booklet publication in the UK enjoying almost a free reign in this market sector. Voluntary benefits will be a huge growth industry over the coming years as employers seek cost effective ways of enhancing benefit packages. Therefore, PGH will face growing competition - we have already won some of their business. Their core product (Hospital Cash Plan) is a poor substitute when compared with other insurance products albeit they are extremely successful at 'selling' it in to employee groups through worksite activities giving them a live base of over 350,000 members. Their worksite activities have caused some upset in the corporate market and their sometimes hard sell approach to employees has lost them some sizeable corporate clients. Never the less, they are still market leaders, have a good client list and millions of pounds of premiums sat in their book.
